So i moused over the two separate files where the PNG sequences were, and the one with just the figure was 32 mb and the one with just the background was 848 mb.
But I don’t upload a PNG sequence to Youtube. I run the final thing through an encoder and it spits out the H.264 (MPEG-4) movie which is 25 mb.
If you’re uploading to Youtube you should (if possible) always render as H.264. It’s Youtube’s preferred format. I’m not certain why you’re rendering in FLV4 files unless you’re trying to post on Newgrounds or something?
But in answer to your question, my guess is that you’d be way beyond that 658 mb number if you did everything as a PNG sequence. You’d probably be looking at, what, 900-1000 megabytes every 30 seconds? Depending.
I have no problem uploading to youtube i just use Adobe Premiere.to put my scenes together and upload..
My problem is when uploading a flash file in Adobe flash pro as a swf or fla, an avi streaming video take a while to load in a html5 webpage. where as i was wondering if the png format would save me file flash size over the AVI format..though 800 mb for your back ground file is as big as all the files i am using now so thats really no advantage i guess,
This is why i was asking about the png format.
this is a flash file http://www.ivysdomain.com/3_Stories/story/Default.html
using png at 640 x 520 in a action script3 swf the file size for the swf file under 300kb , but the raw FLA file is 280mb see why i am looking for ways to reduce size..lol
thanks for your answers
